FYI: Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick Back in Stock
I went to return something to my local Sephora, and they had all the Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks back in stock. They're not available online yet, but they aren't gone forever!!

love hate relationship with OCC Liptars
Hi ladies, I'm wondering if anyone else has the same problem as I do with the liptars? They're so pigmented, long lasting, and the colors are amazing , but it's so messy! It's so hard to put on sometimes and you really have to be patient in my opinion. It's also really drying so I'm trying to decide if it's worth the hassle.  xoxo, Kelly

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette without Primer
Has anybody contacted Hourglass and/or received a response about the missing mini primer? When I ordered my palette, it was included in the description on their website. I checked when I heard rumors it was missing in packages and it looks like it was removed from the description at some point (after many orders were placed). I think Sephora removed that part before it went live so at least they were upfront about what we're getting in the mail.  That mini-primer pushed me over the edge and got me to order the kit because it added value to $45 worth of product for $58 (plus value for the different shades available I guess). Plus, I really like my primer and would have liked a travel size for when I visit my family this weekend.

Face, neck, and chest are different colors...how to match?
Hi all! Sorry I haven't been around lately. Life got in the way. Anyway.   Summer is coming up, and the inevitable wearing of fewer clothing items, which means chest will be showing.   My problem is this: My face is pink, my neck is a darker yellow, and my chest matches my face (pinker and lighter). I've heard that you'd want to match summer foundation to your chest, so there isn't an obvious color difference. Thing is, there's a color difference even if my foundation matches my chest. My neck won't cooperate at all, so I have a foundation line at my jaw.   tl;dr If a foundation matches my face and chest, it won't match my neck.   I'm not sure what to do in this situation, so any advice would be appreciated.

Odorless make-up removing wipes - do they exist?
Has anyone come across make-up removing wipes that don't have a smell to them? I've tried nearly every Neutrogena wipe out there (as well as Olay, etc.) and all of them seem to have perfumes in them.  It's not a huge problem for me as my skin doesn't break out because of this, but I just personally would prefer to not have my skin smell like pink buttfruit every time I try and clean my face. Any recommendations?

Makeup and working out
I've seen women who can wear a full face of make up while working out - foundation, eyeliner, everything! I wouldn't wear any myself, because I frankly sweat like a pig and looking pretty/decent/presentable/human is probably the last thing on my mind, but I do marvel the ladies who can look so put together even when they're running or doing reps.   I'm really curious how their makeup stays put. I can barely get my eyeliner to stay even when I'm not exercising and not end up with raccoon eyes! :/ (I'm a totally new makeup noob, btw....)   Any workout goddesses want to share their secrets?

Anyone ever accidentally gotten Kat Von D, or other heavy foundation on their Clothes?
I try to be so careful about not getting foundation on my clothes, but I had a major blunder today. Has anyone had success with a product, or cleaning methods, to get foundation out of their clothes? Regular washing did not work. The Lock-It foundation is pretty thick and I dripped/dropped onto my pants, so it's not just a smudge. My pants are chocolate brown so bleach would stain. I'm just hoping I'm not the only one....

Going to Tokyo this summer! Makeup/general suggestions please!
I am making a short trip to Tokyo this summer. While a lot of it will be sight seeing, I most definitely will curve out time for shopping. So I just want to hear everyone's suggestions on things worth picking up!   I am am not looking for foundations, concealors or powder (unless it's absolutely amazing, contemplating on Cle de peau concealor which is cheaper there). No eyeshadows either, maybe a few mascaras, liquid eyeliners, lip products and as many blushes/cheek products as I see fit and most certainly brushes. (I want to get some hakuhodo or chikuhodo, but any other suggestions are totally welcome) I would prefer something that's more accessible.   I recall reading about some products that aren't sold outside of Japan (makeup), and I remember making a note to myself that I should get them when I go but I can't seem to remember. Anyone?   So far (just so we don't duplicate) I have my eyes on -Kate mascara base -Kate cream blush (that comes in a jar) -Jill Stuart blush (just because it's so pretty)  -Majorica majorca mascar   Lastly any tips on good stores, getting around, places to see? Any suggestions are highly appreciated!    Last lastly, any other non-makeup related must buys?    Thanks tons!

Koh Gen Do mailed samples to me!
I have heard many great things about the KGD foundations.  The only drawback is that none of the Sephora locations near me (Canada) carry this brand.  I didn't want to purchase without testing for compatibility, shade, etc.  So I wrote to KGD and they were nice enough to mail some samples of their Moisture Foundation, Aqua Foundation, (in 5 shades) and some skin care samples to address my dry, acne prone skin.  They delivered beyond my expectations.  I was only looking to find my foundation shade.  But ended up receiving a bunch of samples to help with my skin issues as well.  I'm truly happy with all the skin care samples I get to try out tonight.   I may have to break my no-buy commitment

Best Travel/All-in-One Makeup Palette??
I've been looking for a all-in-one makeup palette for travel, but it seems they sell out pretty fast (or aren't replenished often). Ideally, I want something with a blush, mascara, eyeliner, a lip color, and a few eye shadows. (I'm not really focusing on the foundation since most of these palettes are for lighter skin than mine.) Suggestions?

Which is the better setting spray?
Hello! I'm trying to decide which makeup setting spray to purchase. I've heard great things about the URBAN DECAY All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray and know that it is a cult favorite.

Pink Beauty Blender is smaller than Purple Beauty Blender
I was wondered about this when I went to JC Penny to get my friend a make over. I was waited for her,  I saw they have pink and purple beauty blender on the makeup station. While I was holing it, I realized the pink is smaller than the Purple one. I bought one in Pink color, when they said keep the box for air dry the beauty blender. Every time, I tried to put the BB on top on the box come with it. my bb could not stand up for air dry.

False Swatches
Why do companies like to photoshop swatches of their products? Especially foundations. Kat Von D's Lock It tattoo foundation in the shade M53 looks a LOT darker than it does in person. Urban Decay's Naked Skin foundation in 6 looks something that I'd never be able to wear.

Clean Freaks
Are any of you clean freaks? I absolutely hate it when my products get dirty. I hate when I have to pour foundation out and it gets around the mouth of the bottle and I can't clean every last bit of it and it just ends up dirtying the entire inside of the cap. I also hate getting concealer around the opening and dirty mirrors from powder fallout.

Foundation and Concealer Help!!!
Hello. In the past weeks, I have been attending Sephora's Beauty Classes (Chicago, IL) but alas I haven't bought anything yet (in the future I will 😉). But, I do have a question regarding foundation and concealer. Well. I am African-American with a colorID of 1r12. But, I was recently using Urban Decay Foundation in shade 10 but I felt the foundation was too dark for me. So, I need help trying to find a BETTER foundation that is not going my skin complex to look dark-looking. Also, I have been using Benefit Cosmetics concealer in Deep 5 (I believe) please don't judge me at all. Can anyone help me?
